SS - SF - MiLB
The Giants reassigned top prospect SS Marco Luciano to minor league camp.
Luciano is a 19-year-old shortstop who's considered a top-10 prospect in baseball. He arrived to spring training looking "noticeably thicker" this spring but went 1-for-16 with 11 strikeouts in Cactus League action. It's clear what he has to work on, and prospect evaluators still remain extremely high on his offensive potential.
Giants manager Gabe Kapler says top SS prospect Marco Luciano looks "noticeably thicker" this spring.
"His swings and the sound of the ball coming off his bat in the cage reflected that," Kapler elaborated. Luciano is only 19 years old and already considered one of the most exciting prospects in all of baseball. However, he has played just nine games above rookie ball so it'll be interesting to see how he fares over the course of a full minor league campaign. Luciano is a highly valuable asset in dynasty baseball leagues.
